A Typical Day
Our morning session is usually divided into five periods.
The children freely explore a wide range of resources both inside and out. They develop confidence through choice and reveal their interests which we feed into our planning.
2. Snack Time
This is a sociable time when the children and staff gather to eat their snack together and conversation is promoted. We ask you to provide your child daily with a small snack box containing healthy snacks only- fruit/veg/rice cakes/breadsticks. No chocolate and no nuts (we are a nut free zone). We provide cows milk, oat milk and water for the children to drink.
3. Adult-led Activity
The staff support children learning during activities that are based on our curriculum and our children’s interest. These activities include, Spanish, Yoga, Music and Zumba. The activities are sequenced to develop skills overtime for the different age groups within the setting.
4. Game Time
The children head to the garden to play on the bikes, ride-ons and play ball games or stay inside to explore treasure baskets.
5. Group Time
This period includes story time, singing and Show &Tell before we sing our “Goodbye Song.”
Starting from September 2020, we will be holding a lunch club that will run every Wednesday 12:20pm-3pm, as an extension of the morning session. Lunch club is ideal for pre-schoolers to help prepare them for starting Reception but it is also open to those children at a stage to benefit from it. To find out more and to book, please get in contact with Annabelle Allan, our Setting Manager on tel: 07310293930 / email: email@example.com
We are delighted to be partnered with the fantastic Brilliant Play Solutions to offer their Mini Explorers Club after our morning sessions. The children are collected from the ETNA Centre at the end of the morning session and they are taken to Marble Hill Park where new adventures await, enhanced by games, stories, crafts & dressing up, to name but a few, all under the careful eye of Brilliant Play Solutions play team.

The staff work really hard to understand each child’s changing needs and interests as the children grow older and they prepare them for school. They are always on hand to chat about any worries and take time to talk to all the parents at drop off and pick up. We can’t wait for our youngest to start next year and know he will love it too.
